Pagan Interest Circle: Who We Are

You’re invited to a Night of Visioning in Sacred Space this Saturday, February 24, at 7:00 pm.

Join the Pagan Interest Circle in the Chapel as we make magic on the Night of the Full Moon.

We began February 1st with the solar holiday Imbolc, the halfway point between the winter solstice, Yule, and the spring Equinox, Ostara, on the Wheel of the Year. The word “imbolc” means “in the belly of the mother” because the seeds of spring are beginning to stir in the belly of Mother Earth. The Great Goddess Brigid is celebrated at this time. 

We’ve worked with winter energy to divine our truth. Now the energy of this season calls us to vision our truth into form. What “seeds” will we find within our own bellies? 

We will call on Brigid and work with Full Moon energy to aid us in our quest. Bring your journal, or start a new one, for this ritual. For more information, contact Violetta at

After the ritual, we will have tea available. Any finger food or non-alcoholic beverage you would like to bring to share is most welcome!

*For more about the relationship of Brigid to Imbolc, I refer you to the CUUPS website:

Pagan Interest Circle: Text


For over 20 years the Pagan Interest Circle (PICT) of the First Unitarian  Universalist Church Society of San Francisco, a Chapter organization of  CUUPS, has been meeting for monthly Full Moon Rituals on the Saturday evening closest to the Full Moon, and for the solar pagan holidays of Winter Solstice and  Beltane. We are an open circle dedicated to providing ritual space for all respectful families and individuals of any age. Our policy requires that our rituals are clean and sober, drugs, alcohol, fragrance and animal free. Individuals who rely on an animal companion are welcome but will need to secure their animal away from the the ritual room/space.
